For all the Thespians, or anyone who knows something about the theater business.

1. How can I find a reputable acting coach?
I was thinking about craigslist, as I have seen acting coaches advertising on there, but I'm not sure that this is a good idea. Even if they link to a professional website, how can I tell if they really know what they are doing?

2. Would it be really weird if I asked my acting professor to coach me one on one?
I think she's a brilliant actor and director, and she's the only person (right now) I could trust to coach me properly.

3. I'm auditioning for a theater school. I need one classical and one modern monologue. I don't want to be cliche and do a Shakespeare monologue, although I love his work. I was thinking of doing something from Antigone for the classical, and something from A Streetcar Named Desire for the modern. Still cliche? Do these seem like good choices? Can you suggest any monologues I could do?
